Etched in My Body (Charut Begufi)

Etched in My Body

Goel Ratzon was a self-proclaimed healer in southern Tel Aviv, with 21 wives and 38 children. His harem included the children of his devoted follower Shuly, who encouraged her daughters Sheri, Ilanit and Galit to marry him, despite the fact that Galit was underage.

Now, five years after Goel was jailed, these women look back at the time they spent in this cult, coming to terms with their past and fighting to understand how they could have fallen under the spell of such a man.
